Day 21 mollies ridge shelter

Miles hiked 12.2
Total miles 176.8

Our first day in the smokies was memorable.  Fontana dam was cool.  We had a hard hike today it ws in the high 70's and we had s big climb with the heaviest packs of the trip with 5 1/2 days of food. It was the first day water was scarce and we had to carry 2 liters of water.  Sassafras had a good time tonight talking with all the other thru hikers here tonight.  Kaboose

Today was fun.It was a good hike going up the big hill. Wd hiked 11 miles today. Our pack was heavy today. Finally I got another sunburn on my arm so both of my arms have sun burns now but still having a good time overall. More to come. - sassafras
